I have a small SSD and a large HDD. I'm in a similar situation to the following user:
In the process of manually partitioning my drives, I encounter a menu that looks like this (note: I fetched this image from google as an example). I have several questions about this menu and about manual partitioning:
- What does the F character after the partition size indicate in the menu image? In my case, I also have K and f characters. What do those mean? (I'm assuming B is bootable)
- What characters (properties, whatever) do I need to have for the root partition on my SSD?
- I have indicated where /, swap, and /home go. If I do not make separate partitions for the rest of the top level folders (/var, /tmp, etc), where does it decide to place them?
My setup is based on the opinions I've gathered throughout these forums: 20Gb root partition on SSD, +500Gb /home partition on HDD, 16Gb swap on HDD (this was the default size in my case).
